Re: Carriers

Kiwi,

You have made some good observations about carriers that I had thought about...
But I will keep my comments limited to the PIAT.


The PIAT had an effective range of just 100 yds, and...

Mario,

I took a quick look at my primary documents, and have attached three documents (one zip file) that may have the information you seek.

I have tons of these documents, so let me know if...

Re: USA: Early M4 hulls with L40 gun?

Mark,

Does this mean the rear of the breech is in fact closest to the loader and not furthest from the loader?

I'm wondering if the US and British measured calibers by bore length, and the...

Re: USA: Early M4 hulls with L40 gun?

Re: USA: Early M4 hulls with L40 gun?

I can tell you that a primary US document lists the gun length as 118.36 inches, which is 3007mm or L40.

I don't know how they measured, but there's no muzzle brake to muddy the waters, and if...

Re: USA: Early M4 hulls with L40 gun?

Well... the idea was to copy unit #302/303 to give them the L40 (Weapon 47).

One option would be to export the oob to a csv file, then open in Excel or other spreadsheet and sort by the available column.
